New Details

This month we have added a bumper set of details to the library. These details feature material transitions. We explore the details between the materials such as brick, timber cladding, zinc and hung tile. We also look at how to transition those materials to the ground with various foundation details. 

They are all available as 2D CAD drawings and 3D SketchUp drawings. All details are now available in Revit format too! This forms part of the pro plan. The new details are available to all existing members, or can be purchased individually by non members.

This is a great set of new details for the start of 2022, I hope you find them useful.

The full set of details are listed below:

  • zinc to brick transition detail with masonry cavity wall and protruding cladding
  • zinc cladding to ground foundation detail – masonry cavity wall, protruding cladding
  • zinc cladding to ground foundation detail – timber frame wall with protruding cladding
  • zinc to brick transition detail with timber frame wall and flush elevation

Finally, we have published our latest guide on the detail library, looking at material transitions. The blog post explores some of the criteria for producing details such as the ones above and others featured in this months set. We look at some of the key considerations for detailing cladding material transitions and cladding to ground junctions. A really useful article with plenty of tips to take away.
